Ryan Lenaghan takes close to 13 million into Day 7Day 6 is in the books at the 2011 World Series of Poker main event and there are now just 57 players remaining in the hunt for the top prize of $8,711,956 and poker immortality. The day began with 142 players and during the course of the day the bustouts continued to march players out of the Amazon Room at an accelerated rate, some of whom were literally in tears as their main event run came to an end.

Notable eliminations on the day included Joseph Cheong, Eli Elezra, Ray Henson, Sorel Mizzi, Christian Harder, Jens Kyllonen, Claudia Crawford, Chris DeMaci, Amanda Musumeci, Jean-Robert Bellande, and Allen Cunningham.

The overnight chip leader is Ryan Lenaghan with 12,865,000. Big-name professionals Ben Lamb (9,980,000), Phil Collins (7,240,000), and Bryan Devonshire (5,970,000) have joined him in the top 10. Other notables still in the hunt include J.P. Kelly, Per Linde, Lars Bonding, Tony Hachem, David Bach, Steve Brecher, Minh Nguyen, Sebastian Ruthenberg, and David Sands.

Sands is a part of one of the most interesting story lines in the main event. He finished the night seated at the same table with the last woman standing, Erika Moutinho, who also happens to be his girlfriend. Fathers and sons and siblings have been pitted against each other before at the WSOP, but the pairing of a couple for bragging rights was a first. Sands takes 2,765,000 into tomorrow, while Moutinho holds 2,075,000.

Day 7 begins at noon tomorrow and you can follow along with the action in Card Player’s level-by-level live reporting.

Why isn't Andrew Brokos one of your "notables" mentioned as still in the running? He's got 2.5 million in chips.

You think they'd mention that Erick Lindgren is still in it too.
